Mental health is sometimes a very difficult state to identify, most times it is diagnosed after a major problem has occurred at which time it will have already taken strong roots in the individual suffering from it. In the end this requires medical interventions and supportive systems mainly through psychologists and psychiatrists. One area that is usually neglected is continuous support the individual requires outside of the hospital, hence Aspennglobal.
In Kenya, long term recoverers from mental illness specifically students continue to have difficulties such as dropping out of school and being unable to return due to on and off hospitalisation. Lack of facilities to support such individuals has lead to high rates of school dropouts in this age group. This, therefore, creates a bleak future for these individuals. Something can be done.
